How to choose the right feature wall colours

There are a few factors you need to think about before you buy feature wall paint. You should consider…

The size of the space

If you’re painting a small space, like a WFH zone, dark feature wall colours are a smart choice. Darker feature walls give the illusion of a bigger room. A rich, dark purple like Decadent Damson from the Simply Refresh Feature Wall collection creates the perception of depth. And when the remaining walls are painted in a pale neutral such as Blush Pink, this colour scheme can make the room feel incredibly cosy and inviting.

The light in the room

The direction a room faces, and the way sunlight enters a room, should influence the colour of your feature walls. For example, south facing rooms get the most natural light throughout the day, which means most feature wall colours in the Simply Refresh Feature Wall range work great. Don’t be afraid to choose a bold colour. The jewel tones of Emerald Glade can add a touch of glitz and glam to any room. Greens are also a good pick for east facing rooms.

The feelings you want to echo

Paint colours can evoke feelings or memories. So, one of our top tips when picking feature wall colours is to choose a shade that’s going to stir up emotions or fill you with nostalgia. Warm colours, for example, can make you feel happy and optimistic. They can also remind you of sunshine or whisk you away to a hot summer’s day.

A bright yellow such as Golden Sands in the Simply Refresh Feature Wall range will certainly put a smile on your face. Why not try it as a fun painted headboard in your bedroom?
